address these kind of concerns which would be useful in the long term but detrimental in the short term and they would pay a heavy political price for the increase in crime on the basic security that would come with this reform. if you talk a little bit about that and also in tunisia i was there a couple of weeks ago, and one of the topics that came up quite a bit was the attacks on the u.s. embassy and while those of us here that might obviously highlight the need for the securities sector reform i feel like a lot of tunisian actors interpret things very different and to some the less says that we need stronger security forces and that some of the changes, some of the modest changes we might see as positive and the very modest direction of the reform over the past year are seen by some as a cause for the week security forces and the call for incidents like the attacks on the embassies. if you can comment on this tension and how to address that. >> the iron fist notes the outrage. you want to jump in on this? >> sure. i mean, first of all i would sort of like to the secure a sector refo
that tell us the most about politics. everyone thinks the popular vote is close to 50-50. >> that's right. we see in the states that have closed, there are a couple of calls. obama doing great in the northeast. mitt romney, doing well in the south. states projected for obama, vermont, maine. going out on a limb. and for romney, he has georgia, indiana, south carolina, west virginia. the ones we care about, virginia and ohio. they feel ok about florida and virginia. but a sign of trouble. jonathan martin is hearing the margins for him in chesterfield county just outside of richmond, where he is doing well, it is not good enough. if he's losing there, it's a sign of trouble in the state. in ohio, romney is worried about the midwest. wisconsin, and ohio, real nervousness. in the obama war room, confidence. exit polls looked good for john kerry. there are jokes about president kerry. but their models are coming in. the vote is coming in how they expected. >> one state declared is indiana, which obama won and it is called for romney. it shows the map is smaller this time, the map is smaller. s
us that none of the vote has been counted. how can you say that mitt romney has won west virginia? well, all of our cbs news projections tonight will be based on the vote that has been counted and also our exit polling. we have been talking to voters in all of these states all day long as they've left the polling places and based on that exit poll information, we will project winners in these states and we will do so only when we have complete confidence in that projection. now let's look at that battleground states that we keep referring to tonight. these are the states that could go either way. these are the states that are going to tip the balance tonight for one candidate or the other. the polls have closed in a few of them, but many are still voting. in the state of virginia, we do not have a projection, but this is the tabulated vote as we see it so far. just 2% of the vote has been counted. mitt romney out with a lead there. this is a state that president obama won by 6% in 2008, but again, the mitt romney lead may or may not last because only 2% of the vote has been counte
also reporter ruth conniff with us tonight here on "the ed show" that is "the ed show" from new york city. "the ed schultz." "the daily rundown" starts now with chuck todd. have a great weekend. see you here tomorrow morning. >>> as we fall back from daylight savings, the candidates are using every minute of that extra hour. president obama bounces from one battleground state to another using ohio as his airline hub. he's using all the hot spots trying to rally his base and any undecided voters he thinks are left. governor romney is also racing against the clock, tweaking his closing argument just slightly to get into the end zone. and in case you forgot, we've got more than two guys running on tuesday, tonight we'll break down all of the battles, particularly for congress and who will decide control of it and what the next president can get done. good evening from democracy plaza. here in new york city, it is saturday, november 3, 2012. this is a prime time edition of "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. i call it my election preview special, so we'll get to my first reads with
this problem. i do not think he has used the language only high-income people have to contribute on the revenue side. i do not think he has ruled out something which through based blogging would call for some contribution. >> the president will that out a dent in his budget he had this past year. >> that is right. but he has not in his current rhetoric. he does the said the problem should be solved just by high income taxpayers. >> let me ask about another component. capital gains and dividends. what about that side of it? the folks that what bloomberg and do a lot of investing are interested in what happens to capital gains. if you move it up to 20% or talk about higher figure, what would happen to investment in this country and how much money could degenerate? >> rates today are 50% for capital gains and dividends. it is already baked in the cake that is going to 18.8% for high- income taxpayers. they are often overlooked in this discussion but it is already a given. there has been a debate about whether to raise them further. i think your -- you're already seeing some evidence and. you will
out an electoral victory. we'd like to welcome everybody who's joining us now on c-span2. if you're on c-span 1, you have to switch over. if you had a friend that didn't switch over, run over there, pound on that door. you can join us at politico.com, there's an e-mail that will come directly to us onset. we're going to bring you into the conversation. it's 10:00, the polls have closed in most of the states that will determine the outcome of this election. i would say if you wanted to step back and where do we stand at 10:00 on election night, the big headline, the one headline we know for sure, joe donnelly won the senate seat for democrats in indiana, a huge and what unexpected victory for democrats, makes it almost impossible for republicans to win back the senate. we have declared long ago that the house will stay in republican hands, it now looks like the senate will stay in democratic hands. so it's all down to the presidential race about whether or not we have a status quo, divided government in washington. the early states that have been called are very much looking in ba
for us, it's written by us. >> three more days and we can get to work building our country. >> in two days america's got a choice to make. >> one final push and we'll be there. tomorrow we begin a new tomorrow. >> it's up to you! you've got the power! campaign 2012, bob schieffer, norah o'donnell and john dicker son with analysis. anthony mason reports on exit polls. byron pitts follows congress. from cbs news election headquarters, here again is scott pelley >> pelley: good evening. it's a state-by-state battle tonight for electoral votes. the magic number, you'll hear it all night, is 270. you'll also be hearing a lot tonight about the battleground states. nine states where the election is so close they could swing either barack obama or mitt romney. those are the nine battleground states. the polls have closed in only one of them, virginia, and the race there we do not have enough information yet to make a projection in the state of virginia. bob schieffer is, this is -- you've been covering presidential elections since 1972. >> not 57 of them! (laughs) >> pelley: quite a few, bob.
. and unemployment and people living off the system that don't need to live off the system. because i used to work with the legislation. i was a lobbyist. with home health. and i got to see exactly what it was all about. if the people don't get out and vote and don't get out and voice their opinion, then they have nobody to blame but themselves. they cannot just sit back and say, okay, it is alright, but i am too lazy to get out and vote. you have to speak because every vote counts. it does not matter what color you are or who you are. it did not matter to me if obama got in office or mitt romney, as long as it was for the people. >> that was from mississippi. we want to show you the scene at the ronald reagan building. this is where the national journal will be holding their event "by the numbers." it should be beginning in just a minute. it will be led by ronald brownstein, a longtime contributor. elaine chao, former secretary of labor, will be participating. as you can see, it looks like they are almost getting ready to go. as we watched the room, we will take this call from leesburg, va. on ou
ahead of us. they're right here. and we have to sit down and go to work on it now, not wait. this was the message the american people sent from all over and that is they're tired of these partisan gridlocks. they're tired of things like i have one goal, to defeat obama. that is gone. obama was reelected overwhelmingly. the american people want us to work together. republicans want us to work together. democrats want us to work together. they want to balance the -- a balanced approach to everything. especially with the huge deficit and taxes are part of that. i can remember my first president after i had been selected as the democratic leader. i was so afraid, i really was. and as i do on occasion, off the cuff, i said i know how to fight. i know how to dance. i do not dance as well as i fight but i would much rather dense hair -- any time and i still feel that way. it is better to dance than to fight. it is better to work together ho. everything does not have to be a fight. that is how it has been the last couple of years. everyone should comprehend especially my senate frie
in the right direction that we should build on. >> kristen is at the white house for us. happy thanksgiving to you. what are you hearing from the white house on this cease-fire? >> happy thanksgiving, alex. the white house is encouraged by this cease-fire, as you point out. it is a diplomatic success for president obama, for secretary of state hillary clinton. but they are also viewing this cease-fire very cautiously. they know it is fragile so they're keeping that in mind as they continue to monitor the situation. president obama spent part of his day yesterday reaching out to leaders in the region, thanking them for making this cease-fire possible. called egyptian president mahmoud morsi, and benjamin netanyahu. president obama reiterated the united states believes israel has the right to defend itself. also said the united states would take this moment to work towards helping israel to further secure the region. but also talked about the importance of trying to achieve a broader security agreement in the region. and in speaking to egyptian president mahmoud morsi, president obama really
keating joins us from tampa, and the numbers. it was crazy yesterday, phil. >> absolutely, reportedly six hour waits at certain locations in miami-dade county outside of the precinct on friday, three and a half hours all day long to stand in line, shuffle forward and finally cost their ballot. the numbers are big despite the fact in 2008 there was early voting on this sunday before election day, this year, there is not. and that's been a point of convention, democrats and democrat leaning groups have called that voting suppression engineered by the republican dominated legislature and governor's office in the state of florida. however, despite those cries, the numbers have been as good as they were back in 2008. take a look at numbers right now. nearly 4 million, this is through friday, nearly 4 million floridians voted early, by early voting or absentee ballot. and the way it breaks down, the most early voters stand in line and cast their ballot, 45% of those people are registered democrats, 36 are registered republicans so clearly democrats have the edge there on early voting, but when

is to work with these entities to assess the situation on the ground and to more so used this information to see what we can do better going forward. gnon clybrun, tonight at 8:00 eastern on c-span2. >> and look now at the defects edia.cial m benill heear from rattray. this is just over 45 minutes. >> ben rattray is the -- >> thank you. not exist 10 years ago and is now growing at a rapid pace. he is a graduate of stanford university. ben rattray has been listed in time magazine's 100 most influential people in the world congratulations on that, certainly. let us start with this before we talk about the details in the room. a lot of people not fully aware of the platform you've created. talk about what you created, what you did, and how it has evolved. >> great to be here. thank you. i initially wanted to be an investment banker. my senior year, i go home, and one of my other younger brothers says he is gay. he said the thing that was most painful for him was not people that were explicitly anti-gay, but the people that refuse to stand up against them. i reflected about what i wanted to d
of us who are former members think back nostalgically and how we relate to these things personally. i know tom and martin have great stories to tell and we're fortunate to have too great effective, insightful, and intelligent former members and we will moderate the elections. it went to make a couple of comments. we were on a panel for foreign diplomats. most of the campaign discussion was about obama and romney. someone asked me if there was no discussion of the congressional races. as a matter in america who is elected to congress, it really hit me. i think the answer is yes. as a former nine-term house member i was troubled by the question. i could understand it because most of the discussion concerns they presidential race. i am convinced that the founding fathers were making a clear statement when they said the first part of the organization of our government, the article one organization was congress. implicitly they felt in terms of trying to rebel against executive authority that it was an important branch of the government. we have this amazing election -- as it relates to co

election headquarters. great to have you with us. all day long we've been watching grandmothers, first-time voters, rich people, poor people, blue collar workers, all the people who believe in america going to the polls, every state of our union today joining together at the ballot boxes, and we will be bringing you the results. we are here to tell you who won, why throughout this evening and what's next. it's your voice as we've been saying and your vote tonight. >> diane, it has been a long, bitter and expensive race. deadlocked most of the way and revealed an america divided in so many ways. tonight, all of you are going to tip the balance. >> and now we are ready to begin because we have three projections to make because the polls have closed in six states and we are ready to go. here it is. indiana, this state has switched, president obama won it four years ago, governor romney has won it this time. it is not a surprise, though. we were expecting governor romney to take indiana. kentucky, this is a very red state and governor romney has taken kentucky, as well, tonight. and vermon
and it kind of wears on you. >> i hear you. thanks, man, appreciate it. and thanks to you for staying with us this hour. uh, that happened! that really happened. we are not going to have a supreme court that will overturn roe versus wade. there will be no more antonin scalias and samuel aleatos added to this court. we're not going to repeal health reform. nobody is going to kill medicare and make old people in this generation or any other generation fight it out on the open market to try to get health insurance. we are not going to do that. we are not going to give a 20% tax cut to millionaires and billionaires and expect programs like food stamps and kid's insurance to cover the cost of that tax cut. we'll not make you clear it with your boss if you want to get birth control under the insurance plan that you're on. we are not going to redefine rape. we are not going to amend the united states constitution to stop gay people from getting married. we are not going to double guantanamo. we are not eliminating the department of energy or the department of education or housing at the federal leve
we are tracking the storm. >>> joining us throughout the morning for our special coverage, south carolina congressman jim clyburn, obama campaign senior adviser david axelrod. virginia governor bob mcdonnell. former ohio governor ted strickland. texas congressman jeb hensarling and bob shrum, a democratic consultant who worked on the kerry and gore campaigns. it is tuesday, november 6th, election day. "starting point" is coming to you live from washington, d.c., and we begin right now. >> welcome, everybody, you're watching a special edition of starting point and cnn's live coverage of election day 2012. the two candidates have been talking for about 17 months now and now it's the american people who will have the final say. these are the states with polls that are opening right now. state of delaware, state of florida, state of georgia, illinois, kansas, louisiana, maryland, massachusetts, michigan, missouri, pennsylvania, rhode island, south carolina, tennessee, and washington, d.c. you're looking at a live picture now from wilmington, delaware, where joe biden is expected to v
himself into an innovative program at walter reed, where they ended up using acupuncture, medication, and other techniques to wean him of all the drugs he was on, and for this program he actually was able to walk out of walter reed on his own 2 feet. i really commend the military for allowing us to tell the story, both the good and the bad, but for recognizing the problem, that there is the problem of over medication, and that they are looking for outside the box ideas on how to fix it. that is sort of the whole basis of the film, the status quo is not working and we need to start looking for outside the box ideas. >> sunday night at 8:00 on "q&a". >> now, president obama's senior campaign staff on tuesday's election results. he spoke with reporters during a half hour conference call looking at a voter turnout, the role of outside money, and at the state of the republican party. >> thanks, everybody, for joining the call today. we have heard from many of you individually. we thought it might be easiest to just do this:what are some things together. it has been roughly 36 hours since
taxes now, that is not going to play in my judgment with any of us. we are not for raising revenue paid, certainly. second, remember we're at the 18 months ago we passed the debt ceiling increase, and now it's time to do the second debt ceiling increase? we're just a couple months away from having to go to that debate again, and we get to do any of the promise cuts from the 115 months ago. so where are those? this idea that race accident, we promise we'll get to the cuts, now we promise we'll get to the customer american people are saying are you serious? i think is really problematic. >> let's understand the big picture here, and the presence of philosophy. i've been watching, i remember him looking us in the eye the date was february 10, 2009 when he was selling his economic stimulus plan, and he said fdr's new deal actually did work but he should've spent a lot more money and then the records would've shown it. it seemed to me he was looking at writing of unexplained, he convinced me that he is a keynesian economist on steroids. when i look at this sequestration deal, and the fiscal
and it was probably his best speech of the whole campaign season. what have we learned about him? what tells us how he's going to govern? whether he will widen his circle, whether he will shake up the cabinet. and most importantly reach out and do a better job of trying to get around or work with those opposing him vigorously in congress? >> yeah. andrea, i think that's still the big $64,000 question. but of course the key thing that has changed is barack obama no longer has to run for re-election again. he has to care about the fate of his party, who his successor is, but he's not going to have to spend the next four years calculating every move in terms of how it's going to play in a handful of swing states four years hence. that could translate into driving a little more aggressively, taking the fight to republicans a little more aggressive. but that didn't really work so well the first time around. i really think the key question here actually, andrea, is what happens with the economy? i mean, you can imagine a scenario where the economy gains some traction and we actually start to have a bona fid
we know some of you are, you can also follow us tonight on our multichannel live stream. there can find up-to-the-minute results on our interactive map center. you can find a live election blog. you can find speeches from the winners and losers that will be coming along later tonight, and a whole lot more. >> ifill: here with us in our election night studio, which is very spiffy, if i say so myself, as they will be all evening long-- they're spiffy, too, and how lon-- >> woodruff: especially when you see the overhead shot. >> ifill: mark shield, and david brooks, and michael beschloss, and richard norton smith, and we're going to talk among ourselves for just a moment what we see coming. what are you watching for, david? >> florida and virginia right now. you want-- >> ifill: do you have a white board? >> i wish i did. i'm not that spiffy. we talked a lot about ohio. but to get to ohio mitt romney has to hurdle florida and virginia. and we've really got no real information but little whiffes of information, looking pret competitive in both places. so the romney people should be loo
sweet it is and you bet! good morning everybody! congratulations to president obama and to all of us. it's a great victory. savor it enjoy it. put a big smile on your face. it is wednesday morning the morning after. so good to be here with all of you. i feel like we were part of it, we helped make it happen, very proud of what we accomplished and very excited for what this means for america. here on the full court press on current tv on your local progressive talk radio station all the way across this great land of ours, looking forward to getting your reaction to the being victory last night. pardon me, i've got to tell you i've been in a lot of campaigns won some, lost some, always better to win. let's talk about it. give us a call at foreign. 1-866-55-press. tell us how good you're feeling or do it on twitter at @bpshow on facebook or join the chat room at current tv.com, join the chat room and talk to all your fellow full court pressers across the land. peter and dan hello guys. >> hello, sir. >> good morning. >> together with cyprian hi. get a wave here. >> the camera's this way. it
us of the controversy that ensued after the president came out, after the vice president came out and really put him in a position where he either had to declare himself in favor-- because before that, he had said, "well, i really don't-- i'm not there yet. i'm not there yet" on the question-- >> ifill: evolving. >> woodruff: i'm evolving. but then after vice president joe biden said that he was absolutely in favor of gay marriage, the president a few days later came out and said he, too. >> he did him a favor. >> the fact is, the president paid no political price, and, indeed, on the contrary, may very well have been materially aided by his position. >> ifill: michael, i'm curious, is there any-- how much change happens by who we elect as our leaders and how much of it happens through these ballot initiatives, through these referenda, where the voice of the people actually speaks directly to changing laws and changing minds. >> it's its interaction of both of those things with voters. 1978 it was proposition 13 in california, which had to do with reducing state services, and an e
it is a rehearsal or the election for us. we will do a special report sunday night in the same place and same time and we will be here constantly through the end of the day tuesday. hope you have a great weekend." see you sunday. >>> the o'reilly factor is on. >> companies hired more workers in october than at anytime in the last eight months. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.2% right now. today we learned it's actually 7.9%, and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. >> new job numbers out today. there's good news for president obama and some bad news. how will this affect the vote? and is the national press reporting the story accurately? lou dobbs and i will analyze. >> there's something much more fundamental about mitt romney. he seems so old-fashioned when it comes to women. >> a new study shows that two out of the three cable news networks are more negative than positive toward mitt romney. can you guess what two they are? bernie goldberg and i will have some thoughts. >> i don't have anything, anywhere to go, i don't have no clo
